by Yvonne Kapp
Talented, dramatic and brave, Eleanor - 'Tussy' - Marx was the beloved youngest daughter of Karl Marx. Love for her father was one of the great moving forces of her life, zeal for his cause another. In this highly acclaimed biography, Yvonne Kapp brilliantly captures this ardent and tragic personality and gives an unrivalled account of the Marx household and its circle.
Volume II covers the last fifteen years of her life - her work in the socialist movement, her unhappy union with Edward Aveling, her tragic suicide.
